Lovesong of the Electric Bear at Above The Arts
The Hope Theatre have announced a transfer for their production of Lovesong of the Electric Bear by Snoo Wilson, which will run at Above The Arts Theatre in central London from 4 to 21 November, with an official opening on 6 November 2015.
Directed by Hope Theatre Artistic Director, Matthew Parker, this play tells the comic but ultimately tragic story of a true British hero, Alan Turing, who cracked the Enigma Code and in doing so cut short the Second World War.
"Awoken from his deathbed by his favourite childhood teddy bear, Turing is led by the hand through his own personal journey. A journey that takes him from glowing academia to computer visionary, from code breaking genius to war hero, from New York drag bars, to his betrayal by those who had depended on him for victory. This is the story of a man who went from triumph to disgrace - a man whose treatment at the hands of the British establishment represents thousands of homosexual men who suffered a similar fate."
The production is suitable for those aged 16+. Tickets are now on sale.
